Chicago Operator Buying Learjet Limo

Posted on May 3, 2006 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

CHICAGO — This summer, the world's first Learjet limousine will be roaring through the streets of Chicago. "It will break the speed limit, but it doesn't fly," said Dan Harris, owner of Jetmousine, the Bend, Ore., company that has been constructing the high-end luxury vehicle for the past seven months.

Villa Park-based Exotic Coach LimoSuite, which purchased one of the $1 million cars, already has received thousands of inquiries on how to book what the buyer calls "LimoJet" since featuring it on its Web site. "We got a call from MTV's 'My Super Sweet 16' show and Conan O'Brien's people for when they come to Chicago," Exotic Coach's owner Frank DeAngelo said. Of course, with all the bells and whistles, rent isn't cheap: It'll cost $450 an hour to take a spin in the 43-foot-long "LimoJet."
